My main area of interest is the interaction between people and their environments, with a particular focus on neurocognitive aspects. My primary research has been through the Peterborough Adolescent and Young Adult Development Study (PADS+), and therefore has a life-course focus. Topics of particular interest are the role of the brain (and related genetics) in morality (rule-guided behaviour) and self-control. I also have experience in social ecological research and am particularly interested in situating neuropsychological factors in a wider behavioural context.
